This page contains all of the Vantage locations in Horizon: Zero Dawn.
There are 12 Vantage Caches to access in total, broken into three sets of four. They are presented below in the order of their respective sets.
The first vantage can be found across the river to the east of the main gate of The Embrace. There is a large rock formation to the north of a a small group of ruins that make up a Corrupted Zone.
Climb the rocks on the east side of the overlook to reach the Vantage.
This Vantage can be found just north of the Tallneck in Devil’s Thirst, up in the remains of the areas tallest building. Approaching from the south, follow the climb path up into the building (near the north-west corner of the Tallneck’s loop) and make your way upwards.
Climb through the tower’s skeleton to find the vantage on a ledge facing West.
Following the road to the north of the Devil’s Thirst Bandit Camp – not the landmark, but the camp – you can find this Vantage on top of a small pillar of rocks looking back towards the encampment.
This Vantage lies to the south-east of the Daytower, just below the Two-Teeth bandit camp on the map. Approaching from the east, find the climbing path to the left of the road sign for Daytower when exiting the Forsaken Village.
Climb the rock face then up over the two smaller rock walls on your right to find the vantage.
At the base of the steps leading from the Cut Cliffs settlement down to Meridian Gate, there is a climb path on the rocky face along the western side of the trail.
Look for it beneath a grapple branch, then climb the cliffside up to the rappelling point to find the Vantage.
Facing the gates of Sunstone, in the south-west corner of the map, head to the edge of a large rock formation near the eastern path to the city.
Follow the climb path up the rock face, then use the zipline to head back down towards the path and find the vantage on the landing.
Heading up the base of the path east of Sunfall leading north towards Maker’s end, head towards the rock formations on your left.
Make your way up the climbable path, then cross the short plateau at the top and continue to climb along the wall.When you reach the end of this second climb path, you’ll need to take out two scrappers.
Once they’ve been dealt with, the Vantage can be found overlooking Sunfall.
Across the river to the north of Brightmarket, make your way along the shore (or climb down from the northern plateau above)
Use the tightrope to make your way out to the free-standing rock formation, then climb the side up to the top to locate the Vantage.
In the wooded mountains to the south of Maker’s End, near a Shell-Walker feeding area, make your way up into to rocky snowy foothills of the mountaintop. Beware of Scrappers and Ravagers, and find a large chunk of dark grey stone protruding from the mountainside on your right.
Climb your way up and around this old structure, then collect the Vantage from the top overlooking Maker’s End.
This Vantage can be found in the area where you fight the Stormbird on your way to meet Sylens in The Mountain That Fell, near the end of the main questline. After climbing up the side of the waterfall, there is a climbable section of rocks ahead of you on the left.
Climb up and around the cliffs to find the Vantage looking towards GAIA Prime.
In the rocky hills to the west of Devils Grief, across the thin river, you’ll find an open area between two large rock formations (this is also a Corrupted Zone).
There’s a natural set of steps running up between the rocks – follow it towards the top and beneath the southern cliff face you’ll find this Vantage.
At the eastern edge of Devil’s Grief sits the twisted remains of a massive skyscraper – just to the south of the “Iron Ring” encampment you invade in the Main Quest Revenge of the Nora.
From inside the base of this building, use the climb path to reach the open ledge high in the north-west corner of the building, overlooking the Iron Ring.
